To permanently unlock all features of the XBPlay app without a free trial, consider purchasing a license. You can purchase a license by buying the Android, iOS, or Steam Store version of the app. Alternatively, you can purchase a license directly on the website.
On most platforms, you can use the XBPlay app for free for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, an ad will be shown. You can continue to view an ad every 30 minutes, or purchase a full license to remove ads.
On some platforms, the application does not have a trial and you must purchase the app before downloading it.
